I am adicted to this wonderful Hotel. It is not like all these big chains, it is very individual and that you notice from the first minute. Okay, I am a returning visitor but to also be welcomed as one is special.
I have 60 years of travel experience on all continents and at Palcio Estoril feel set back in time.
What a lovely welcome with a Port filled decanter
and Portugals lovely cream pastry.
Already now I know, I will be back.

Excellent Hotel

We stayed three nights at this lovely hotel but wished we were there for longer! Everything about it was good. All the staff were efficient and friendly with nothing too much trouble for them! The hotel is full of old fashioned charm but with modern extras. The breakfast was excellent and If you needed anything not on display, it would be made fresh for you e.g. porridge, poached eggs. We loved our stay here and would love to return.

What a fabulous few days we had there with my friends. Nothing was too much for the staff and they remembered what we liked in the bar. The rooms were excellent, clean, comfortable, warm, beautifully decorated with the charm of a bygone age. All the extra touches were too numerous to list but appreciated that there was a range of tea, coffee making facilities and a well stocked mini bar ( although we didn’t use it) even down to proper wooden hangers and luxury toiletries made it worth more than it’s 5 stars. The range of food available at breakfast was exceptional and the staff exceeded expectations in service and attentiveness. Loved the spa and the dynamic pool is an unforgettable experience. The hotel is located within a 15-20 minute walk to Cais Cais and there is a station very close by if your preference is to travel to Cais Cais by train.
Just a little gripe, please display a notice about cost of tourist tax. Not sure if I was treated fairly when compared with my friends and what was written on the bill, which I didn’t look at until I was home.
